Normal price I think
All Steamer Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
All the Salter products I have had have been of terrible quality - Most just stop working all together.. SALTER= AVOID!
Anybody seen one with removable bases so you can have the extra height for things like steaming puddings?
I'd pay the extra £2 and get this, twice the power https://www.argos.co.uk/product/8508841
I got this on Prime day too but sent it back and got the Instant Pot. Lol. My main reason is that I like the stainless steel pot that comes with the Instant Pot. Its more durable than the non-stick, you don't have to worry about it peeling and you can put any accessories in it. Plus it's easier to buy replacement pots and accessories for. You can get them on Amazon and other places. Plus there were a few more variables with the settings that I liked. They are both similar though and this Crock-pot one is good value for the price. :D
I got this on Prime Day and I know someone with an Instant Pot. It's literally the same thing, but cheaper. I can't see anything the Instant Pot does that this doesn't. I wanted it for yoghurt and beans mainly and it's really good, can recommend!
Yeah try the sauté function on your pressure cooker. It saves washing up as you can do it all in the same pot. Also, all flavours are kept within the one pot too. It depends which pressure cooker you have with regards to the browning/sauté temperature though. My Instant Pot has low, medium and high so it covers all of my browning needs quite well. It sautes for up to 30 minutes too. You can also use the sauté function at the end of pressure cooking to thicken sauces. Plus use it to heat soup and reheat food etc. Its like using a pan on the stove. Try it. ;)
absolutely and yes saute and browning. for browning tho i'll put it on the frying pan. i nevery actually used saute - should i? isn't it 'gentle browning'?
Sauté is a good feature too. ;) I like to sauté before pressure cooking or slow cooking. I agree that not all 12 modes are needed though. You can use use the pressure cooker or manual mode and select the timings. I suppose it’s down to individual preference.
Not sure either never seen these less then £70 (lol)
Bargain, voted hot, not sure why cold, will be checking my local later
Kids parties, that sort of thing. ‘What did you bring, Geoff?’ ‘Oh just some boiled brown rice and a tub (BPA free) of pomegranate seeds. You know, cancer and that’.
Who goes to buffets to eat cheap food these days?
What a load of cobblers. You must be a right laugh at buffets.
Disagree on the oil. Most of the serious health (mostly cancer related) issues with rice are linked to oil and low quality white rice. I only use brown rice and never add oil.
Few things that are also worth trying (I cook rice dishes at least three times a week) - steep the rice for at least 30 minutes in cold water before rinsing - or all afternoon if you want. Also toasting the rice in oil in the cooking pan with onions and spices before adding a stock makes for next-level rice. For a basic spicy rice (for a cup, or 250ml of basmati rice) One small onion 470ml hot stock (1-2 chicken stock cubes depending on how salty you like your rice) 1 heaped teaspoon paprika Half a teaspoon cumin Pinch of cinnamon powder or a stick of cinnamon or cassia bark Pinch of clove powder or two cloves Teaspoon dried marjoram Half a teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 tsp spicy paprika or deggi mirch 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp coarse ground black pepper Half a teaspoon Mexican spice mix (if available, I make my own but it isn't necessary) Heaped teaspoon coriander paste or a big sprinkle of finely chopped fresh coriander Teaspoon garlic granules Fry onions slowly until they start to go dark and caramelise. Add the drained rice and fry on high quickly and briskly (to quickly evaporate the excess water). Once the rice has started to turn slightly golden and translucent you can add the prepared hot stock, stir quickly and place a completely sealed lid on the rice. Cook on lowest for 15minutes, remove cloves/cinnamon, stir rest with the lid on for another 15 minutes or so until serving. This could work in some capacity in the microwave. You could buy pre made crispy onions, although they contain wheat so they will make the rice a bit more sticky.
I heard it makes them really quickly too....
Just keep a look out, I’ve missed the deals on the barista express from AO’s eBay outlet. Hoping it’ll come up again soon
I've had an earlier version of this - and lasted for a good 8 years before one of the plastic bits has just broken. I'm thinking rather than fix it to upgrade to the SAGE Barista Express, but as someone's said above, it's £470 and it's a big step! But then, I do love coffee. . . . . .
This is great with the pods not so good with ground coffee.
Unavailable for me too
The website checks local stores for stock, so will show oos for some, but I still managed to get one in store today.
Appears to be OOS
It's a cool idea yes, but its needs more work done on it to make it work, the water reservoir is to small and needs constant filling up doesn't even last for 1 t shirt, it spits water out on certain fabrics and hanging the garment up on a hanger to get the creases out is a pain as its hard to get any purchase on the item as you just run it over it with no pressure.
Also great for steaming synthetic wigs to straighten or set style!
Its a cool idea . I recently experimented with a similar one from Amazon.,,,, after a while it spits out while spots on clothes... because of the minerals in water.. so they advise to use distilled water . bottom line , its a little more hassle than the usual iron ,but it does work . just run the steam roller on the clothes and the wrinkles smoothen out.... i can see how it is more suited for ladies clothes.
It will just about do that and i say just about but be prepared for to fill it up twice and waste 20 mins of your life :D
Only wanted it to remove fold marks on t-shirts and tops - not as an iron replacement (highfive)
It's for BOTH!!, hahahahahaha. :-D
Code does not work. Says it has expired?
Score the paper in diamond cuts....then make up a solution of fabric conditioner and water in a spray bottle and spray and leave to soak in the cuts before steaming makes it a hell of alot easier just be prepared for your walls to come down as woodchip covers a multitude of sins....I'll be glad to never see the bar steward in my life again ;(
Worth it for cleaning fabric sofa?
Hiya it's the SC2
I'm really confused by your post. What is the model number of your product? Can someone who actually has this product comment on it. I don't even have this product, but looking at the listing, the plastic water tank is transparent and you can see the remaining water in it?? There are also two water tanks and the machine can be used whilst you are filling the other one(?). There is also a warning light which tells you when it's empty so I don't get your comments at all. Also - I have a VAX steam mop and it's absolute garbage. I'm looking to replace it with this.
I used the SC2 (borrowed) and even though that had a 6 minute heatup time, I couldn't refill the tank, I really liked it. I've currently got the H2O HD, and even though I have addressed the bad points of the SC2, the fact You push along the water which is stored in the body of the unit, it makes it heavier to move around. When you are cleaning grout you'd be lifting the unit filled with water which makes it that little bit more awkward.
I have this.... couple of things to bear in mind 1. The floor cloth clips on with side grabbers which means it's doesn't make great contact with the surface. 2. No way of telling how much water is left in the tank until it's too late, and then you've got to wait 20 minutes or so for it to cool down before the safety valve will release. 3. Leave it unused for 5 minutes and the steam stored in the hose turns back into water leaving a fair old puddle. 4. Way overpriced for what it is, when this dies I'll go back to Vax. Sorry just realised this is the updated version, so everything apart from point 2 is probably the same.
Great price for the sc4
Decent price, but I personally much prefer the full size pot style ones, I find the wings on these fall off too easily.
Had one of these for years, very robust and takes up far less space than a colander also really great for rinsing veg and salad as you can close it up then shake to dry the stuff well :)
I had this one before, broke it after 1 week.
Was looking for one of these. Thank you
code doesn't work
I was wondering about bt fonera can you share someone's public wifi. I've got my mum's now as I live across the road but when I move to Plymouth I'll want to extend the fonera throughout my house. Will these let you samba thru your own apps on pc that's what the filehub did.
I keep trying :D
Can you get a nice guy badge revoked? :p
OP, can you change the title to just read FBA, instead of fulfilled by Amazon, just to annoy brilly?
You're welcome and thanks for letting me know. ;)
A few minutes at most to reach pressure. Thanks for link to USA recipes. Much more on there.
That’s great. I’ve not used mine yet. Not sure what to cook. I might do chilli con carne. Here’s the link to the USA recipe book. It’s different to the one that we get in the UK. crockpot recipes usa How long did it take to reach pressure before the cooking started please? Did you take note? :D
Well I cooked the Thai green curry from the recipe book and in was amazing! Just need a list of other recipes now.
I've not used one before. If you look on the Crock pot USA site, you can get the recipe manual for it. Or use recipes for the Instant Pot. Should be similar. There will be loads on Google and probably their Facebook page. :)
Cheaper than a £1 drug from Boots parent company.
Code TESCO10 not valid now.
Why has this been expired? This deal is still available and the code is working too.
Had been looking at it for a few days. Its not stainless steel inner pot as was informed by someone. Its a 1.8litre with no inner pot spare part via a search (didnt call) Quite similar to a Russell Hobbs. Last on HotUKDeal at 20? quid a while back.
Dont forget the popcorn maker!
Any idea if this is national? Good healthy cooking 🥘 Love it. (angel)
I do. One day without rice and I feel something missing from my life.. (lol) (lol)
Yep, needs more water than it says specifically. Cooks quick and is amazingly easy to clean up.
Good deal for a decent rice cooker. Had mine for nearly 2 years now and has been consistently great. At first it burned rice but once you ignore the recommended water quantities and figure it out for yourself it's fine. Heat added OP!
Someone loves Rice.
It's basically the same as doing it in a covered pan. Measure out your rice, measure out your water and it warms it up and cook with the absorption method. I've never really seen a benefit to this as I usually steep, cook and quick-cool rice then microwave it as required. I also usually saute my rice before adding the water so I'd just end up transferring the rice from the pan I could have used anyway into a rice cooker - and creating more mess. You can use them to keep rice warm for hours and you can cook other things in them, but equally you could just cook rice in your slow cooker.
